Kids can't get CCW's. The whole premise of this discussion is if you are carrying and you wind up in a situation where you are confronted by a BG.
For the record I don't carry. I also don't look like your typical victim either. I would general try to leave or avoid a fight but I am more than prepared/capible to defend myself. My issue is why risk losing your weapon in a struggle? IMO it is far worse to wind up on the wrongside of your weapon during a struggle than it is to use your weapon to defend yourself from bodily harm from a determined agressor.
